EIBAR, Spain (AP) - Eibar beat second-division rival Alaves 1-0 on Sunday to secure promotion into Spain’s top league for the first time in its 74-year history.

Eibar’s win coupled with Las Palmas’ 3-2 loss against Recreativo Huelva secured the club’s promotion for next season with two games to spare.

Second-place Deportivo La Coruna failed to secure its immediate return to the first division after losing 2-1 at Numancia, but the Galician club can still secure its place in the penultimate round.

Teams that finish third through sixth face off in a playoff to determine the third team to go up.

Real Betis, Real Valladolid, and Osasuna were all relegated from the first division this season.
